- Harry Lawrence
Harry Gordon Lawrence (1901-1973) was a South African politician.
Lawrence served as a Minister in the government of
Jan Smutsbefore the National Party came to power in 1948.
He was Minister of Home Affairs 1939-43 and Jan-Jun 1948, as well as Minister of Justice 1945-June 1948.
Lawrence had his spleen damaged when he was attacked by Nationalists at a political meeting during the Second World War. This injury caused Lawrence continuous pain, as he explained when he declined to be considered for the Progressive Party leadership in 1959. He did however become the first Party Chairman of the PP.
Lawrence, like all the Progressive MPs except
Helen Suzmanwas not re-elected at the 1961 General Election. He did not return to Parliament but served as temporary Party leader after Jan Steytlerresigned in December 1970, until Colin Eglinwas elected leader in February 1971.
